How To Declutter Your Bathroom Efficiently


Do you want to declutter your bathroom? Here is how to do it efficiently! #decluttering #homeorganization

Since I am now working from home and I have friends and family visiting in the next few months, I am spending a bit of time decluttering and organizing my house. And I have to say that it feels so good!

This weekend I completely decluttered and organized my master bathroom, and I wanted to share with you the process so you can do it too.

How to declutter?

There are many ways of decluttering, but because I am dealing with anxiety and can quickly get overwhelmed, I prefer to focus on one thing at a time instead of doing it all at once.

What I mean by this is that I am going to work on one room at a time and then one drawer at a time.

If I take everything out at once and see a massive pile of stuff in the middle of the room, I get distracted and give up.

So here’s my process:

  1. Remove everything from the drawers, one at a time
  2. clean the drawers
  3. Look at expiration dates of products and throw away what’s expired
  4. For what’s left ask you these questions:
    1. Do I use it?
    2. Do I need it?
    3. When was the last time I used it?
  5. Put back what you need in a specific spot
  6. Give or throw away what you never use
  7. Then follow the same process for the shower/bathtub, under the sink and the whole room

A few things to think about when you are decluttering your bathroom

Makeup and beauty products

I only keep what I use for my everyday look and what I need for my party looks. I got a cute box at Marshall’s to keep them organized and hidden on the countertop so I can access it easily.

For my current everyday morning routine I need:

And then I have the UD Naked Eyeshadow Palette Original, and a few flashy lipsticks to add some colors to my eyes when I go out in the evening.

Everything else I gave it away or throw it away. Now I only buy new makeup when I run out of something to avoid duplicates.

Shower/bath products

My philosophy here is similar than the one for the makeup. Only get one of each product I need and wait to be out of it to buy a new one.

This is what I currently use:

Nail polish

For the nail polish, I let go of colors that I know I would not use again or are no longer moving when I shake them and then put them in a CD basket like this one, and put it under the sink.


The jewelry is a little bit more tricky since we might need different ones according to our clothes.

To be honest, I don’t wear a lot of jewelry. What I have, I have it on 24/7. I’m too lazy to change my earrings every day, so I have small ones that I don’t need to remove when I sleep. Then I have a kate spade necklace that I bought with one of my photographer friends and sleep with it too.

But then I have an arrow on my mirror, similar to this one, with the necklaces that I am most likely to wear when I am going out. And I have a glass box below it for my earrings and bracelets.

Since both of them are very visible, it forces me to keep the bare minimum. Everything else is in a  toiletry bag under the sink.


When you are going to go through your prescriptions, you will find that a lot of them are expired. I think I will try to take the habits to look through them twice a year. I mean I found stuff from our car accident back in 2013 that expired in 2015 …

If you don’t know where to start when you are decluttering your bathroom, this is a right place because you will get rid of a lot of things and it will inspire you to do the same with the rest of the room.

Save for later
